The Chanda Band Staygrahis also discussed with people how criminalization of politics and unregulated & opaque political funding work in tandem.

People were made aware of the fact that fielding of 21 candidates with criminal charges, that includes 9 candidates with serious criminal charges is a pointer to the consequences when political funding becomes opaque.

These criminal candidates inducted to the party do not come with a motto of ‘service before self’ but to seek returns on their investments. The investments which they made as a part of the funding for the party to get the ticket to contest elections.

Rajiv Chowk being a well-known tourist place, people visiting Delhi from other states also halted for a while to observe the campaign. They too kept forward their opinions and complaints against AAP. They expressed their anger on the prevailing conditions of misgovernance in Delhi, poor availability of water supply and electricity, development on technological grounds, housing facilities, and infrastructure.

A general sentiment among Delhiites is that AAP has given nothing except the long list of fake promises. Therefore, people took a pledge not to be trapped in AAP’s sweet talks again.

After gaining so much of support and positive responses, ‘Chanda Bandh Satyagrah’ has decided not to stop. It will keep continuing its moral battle against AAP until it cleans up the
dirt which it has collected around itself.

Albanian opposition supporters took to the streets again Saturday in a mostly peaceful protest, the sixth national one in three months, calling on Prime Minister Edi Rama to step down to pave the way for early elections.

Waving posters and releasing paper lanterns marked “Quit,” some in the crowd of several thousand threw a dozen paint bombs at Rama’s office. Some also hurled firecrackers at riot police near the parliament building. But there was less unrest than in the last protest two weeks ago, when some demonstrators hurled petrol bombs, firecrackers and paint at the government building and parliament.

Rejecting allegations of fraud at the 2017 elections that gave his Socialist Party victory and him a second term in office, Rama told opposition Democratic Party leader Lulzim Basha he would not resign and urged him in a public letter to settle the crisis with talks.

“He is asking me, asking us to capitulate? Answer to him!” Basha told the crowd, who chanted back in unison: “Rama quit.” “Pave the way to the political solution,” Basha added.

Hours before the rally, the EU delegation, its member states’ embassies and the United States embassy had urged protesters to demonstrate peacefully. “We call on all sides to build upon the existing offer for a dialogue, with the view to finding a way out of the current political situation as a matter of urgency,” the EU office said.
